Clever. Claim incompetence after thousands line up for raffle flight tickets. At some point a percentage of these people would just pay for the regular flights just to get the waiting ordeal over.

Every single hyped promo related offering in SA is always running into these "woopsie" issues. Either every single company is clueless or it is by design.

Buys an AIR ticket for R5 to Cape Town... still finds a reason to complain about.
Is there any fine print to this special ? What about the airport duties , would be hilarious if they get a bill at check in for duties.

That aside I just do not see how these guys can subsidize 45000 tickets at R5 without some sort of fineprint catch somewhere in the deal.

No hidden costs. Ticket is R5. R5 only. Of course plus SMS charge.

Can someone explain the business intention behind this?if publicity stunt, then sell for R99 or R199, will have the same influx, but at least with slightly less losses.

I actually attempted to book tickets. From 8h30 till 17h00 in the waiting room on 6 devices, all on different networks and nothing went through. Absolutely nothing. Yet some people managed to buy tickets 6-8 times. (Some bought upto 6 tickets at a time). So I am baffled how that worked. Did they have some networks where it gave them priority where some didnt?

So we will point the entire Anonymous group at them
